Description of a RiverTree Teacher
RiverTree teachers have an active, personal faith in Jesus Christ along with a desire to live out their faith in the classroom. They love books: classic stories, fairy tales, myths and legends, history, natural science, anything well written with good ideas. They love nature, art and music and many other subjects and want to introduce these things to their students. They are lifelong learners.
RiverTree teachers desire to have a discipling relationship with ten to sixteen boys and girls teaching them the habits of attention, respect, courtesy, honesty, thoroughness, accuracy, punctuality and many more. They are comfortable with a curriculum which uses few textbooks and requires teachers to master and teach their subjects without the usual educational aids and lesson guides. Recognizing that RiverTree School exists for the purpose of implementing the method of Charlotte Mason, RiverTree teachers willingly submit to Charlotte Mason's philosophy and become her students. They eagerly seek to increase their own knowledge by reading, discussing and attending educational internships so that they might become better teachers.
RiverTree teachers have, at minimum, a Bachelor's Degree. A teaching certificate and classroom experience are added benefits.
RiverTree School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex or national or ethnic origin.
